Lights, camera action

Lights, camera, action
Hollywood beauty destined for fame
Her Grace echoed the style
in which she presented,
then talent took over the main stage
And with precision, the subject matter was that of the it list,
as if she had her pulse on the moment
perhaps prematurely, before,
yet unlike the bloggers among her.
Each carefully, organically and intuitively selected
presented, planned and precise where having a perfection complex benefitted us all.
30, 000 followers attest to that glimmer,
her sparkle…that je ne sais brilliance that shimmered like a diamond
Like the gem she was.
And in complete sync with her innocence and naivety
She unknowingly would reach her destination
Swiftly and against the odds
Her mission was lofty,
yet her diligence set the standard
Hope and originality begat her
To a spot she never thought she’d reach
A media sensation, headline news, a spot in history
This was how she captivated America’s heart
This irresistible presence
Adored beyond her imaginable capacity
By simply loving her path
By simply loving herself
Her goals surpassed her dreams
A premature exit
The stage was the world
Audience baffled by the destiny
Sought answers for the most improbable
And in a time when nothing is safe
And no one can be trusted
We all felt the warmth and the light
Reminded that there’s glory in even the smallest of things
It’s Gabby that brought love and unity back to us all.
